on the task force for 10 years, and the interest that ms. simon and ms. wilson have shown is certainly admirable. however i think in addition to the disability factor, i think there is one other thing that gives an edge to mr. wolfe, and that is, as you know, at this time, the committee on information technology and the department of technology are attempting to consolidate and upgrade the city's electronic record system with respect to storage backup and retrievable. and this is an area where the task force is -- as you can imagine, very interested. and mr. wolfe has long experience in information technology. that is a matter of fact -- as a matter of fact, what he does professionally. so i think that that should merit strong consideration as you go forward. again, i think, you know, mr. wolfe has served on the task force. he's done so in an admirable fashion. thank you. >> chair kim: thank you. >> good afternoon. my name is diana d. matthews, a small business othe owner. i'm here to speak on behalf of my colleague and friend, kai wilson forsley. every day, kai works for public access

"he has been marching around his campaign bus saying things like , 'if stench calls, take a message .'" he was referencing this quote in the "new york times" -- "if ryan wants to run for national office again, he will probably have to wash the stench of romney off of him." simon's fake quote, attempt at satire was not fully appreciated. in other words, everybody didn't get it. "new york times" columnist paul krugman wrote, "can i say that even though i'm not exactly a fan of mitt romney's, this is just bad behavior?" from liberal commentator taylor marsh, "simon's piece spread like wildfire and calling a gigantic ripple." they weren't alone. simon clarified in editor's note he believes paul ryan calls mitt romney something more dignified than "stench." both presidential candidates promise they will not increase taxes on the poor and middle class but will make a dent in the deficit. this evening we look at romney's plan which has been called mathematica

. >> no doubt you have the right adjective there, simon. the dust has barely settled on what the fed did yesterday. economists calling it a sea change in policy. but speculation already ramping up on two key issues. how long will the fed keep this going and what might be next in addition to mortgage backed securities? already saying early next year when you expect the fomc to extend its mbs purchases and initiate a new round of purchases of treasuries. those policies should remain in place until growth picks up in the second half of next year. that could set the stage for a reconsideration of the fed's current all-in stance. so we're gaming out already six months from now. hard to underestimate what economists are calling exceptionally aggressive policy from the fed to understand what fed chairman ben bernanke is trying to engineer. start with the $40 billion of open-ended monthly mortgage purchases. now tied to progress in the unemployment rate. not a calendar date, not a fixed sum. the more monumental change came in the forward guidance. investors need to hear this. the committee expec

large treasury holdings. simon, let's pick up on that. are we going to see greater dollar weakening and will it have a major impact on asset prices in emerging markets? >> certainly we have seen the dollar weaken both in the run up to the decision and then subsequently on the fact that bernanke surpassed what was expected. we've had a negative call on the euro and we're reviewing that as the risk is very much more two way in respect to what draghi has come out with with his stirlized bond purchases. the one thing to remember is that qe-3 as opposed to qe 1 and 2 is by no means a unilateral policy move by the fed. you've got the swiss national bank, bank of england and potentially the ecb all doing pretty much the same thing. so we don't see it as nearly as much of a negative for the dollar as it has been in the past. but some of that liquidity will come out into the emerging markets as we've seen on previous occasions and that may future some pressure on the currencies. but again, you have to remember that central banks are quite active in the currency markets on a regular basis and
